This morning I was back in the garden, after too many weeks when it didn't happen. The weather here is unusually mild for March -which is often very hot. We have had rain and cool temperatures so it feels like autumn already. The roses are certainly having an autumn flush.
I also want to show you the wonderful quilts I saw at the WA Quilter's Guild show this week.
It was held in the foyer at Central Park in Perth. DH very nicely came with me to enjoy these beautiful quilts -and we then had a lovely lunch. I just want to say that these quilts were the ones which spoke to me -but there were many others equally amazing.
21 Jumpers by Liz Humphries was a very poignant tribute to her relative who was persuaded to put her infant son up for adoption when she was 16. There were 21 handknitted jumpers incorporated into the quilt, which also had the words "She looked in every pram".
This one was so simple but the addition of the coloured thread to the quilting was a wonderful touch.
The quilter said on the label "but it does have to be red!"
You can see how amazing the work on this one was. As a Fair Trade supporter I really liked this one.
You can see what beautiful weather we have been having. DH and I have switched our walk back to the paved path at Hillarys for the winter. The Mullaloo beach walk gets harder as the winter storms come in and change the shape of the beach, so this is our subsitute.
Onwards and upwards!
